Severe weather in 2014

Following the impact of serious flooding on Hampshire’s roads, the Hampshire Highways service is prioritising urgent work on safety hazards.

Your reports of local issues are important to us. We have therefore re-deployed staff to help deal with the backlog. However, we apologise that non-urgent work to deal with less serious road defects, provide carriageway improvements and process damage claims will be delayed and it will take longer than usual to deal with routine requests.
